I'm trying to catch up. If I missed something let me know.
As in the last topic concerning this I'm going to have zero tolerance for shenanigan's. We are not here to debate the policy but to clarify it...you know who you are.
went just fine last year
Hi Mike, thankyou for all the clarifications so far.
The Cayman Islands Health Services Authority recorded our vaccine records digitally. We can show them through the HealtheLife app which shows date/type/batch alongside name and D.O.B. The app can also produce a Smart Health Card QR code, both these systems are in use in several US states and in Canada.
There are a small group of us planning to attend this year (I'm finally using my system credit from 2020!) Would showing the app be sufficient proof of vaccination? I am not sure if the HSA is still providing physical vaccination records.
The FAQ states if you pick up your badge at will-call, you must get a wristband first. If you get your badge mailed to you but stay in areas where mask and wristband are not required, is that any kind of issue? Essentially, if you are lobbycon-ing but actually buy a badge to be a good sport, will you be approached by a staff member asking how you have a badge but no wristband?
On that note, will staff members be on the lookout for actual lobbyconners or is this something that cannot be controlled by Gencon?
edited to add (cause i hit post before i finished): With some areas of the ICC corridors designated as GC spaces (will call, queues, etc) I would assume ‘lobby conning’ could be pretty patch work. Also- please be considerate and follow the attendance guidelines: Gencon is requiring vaccination this year. Don’t try to hunt out loopholes that undercut the safety they are trying to maintian
Masks and Vaccine bracelets are not being required in ICC corridors. Mike
I know there are people that walk the halls, but I guess I'm blown away that someone would actually buy a badge just to wander the halls and not really do anything? Seems like they could just not buy a badge and wander the halls since it was declared that this doesn't cover the ICC corridor.
why not funnel the people with a badge to the wristband station and those without a badge to will call first? That way the lines are “halved” rather then everyone to the wristband station first.
You will NOT be able to pick up your badges or event tickets from Will Call or purchase badges or tickets prior to visiting a Vaccination Verification station and receiving your wristband. You must do this step first.
From Michael Green with Gen Con customer service:
While there are some ICC hallways that are always considered public and not completely Gen Con controlled spaces, attendees will be encouraged and reminded to wear their masks. This is especially true wile queueing for Will Call, Customer Service, or Event Registration.
GC is saying they can't control the space *completely* but they will require vaccination bands and masks if you're in queue for Will-Call.
I'd wait to hear something official.
It does bear clarifying though, do thanks for the inquiry.
Mike, how is the crush in front of the Exhibit Hall before it opens going to be handled regarding masking? Thanks in advance.
